This is an old photo from the antique shop in Pequot Lakes Minnesota.

It is marked on the back in pencil.
Teckla  Wallack Tekla Wolbach, Ray Wohlwend, Myrtle Wohlwend, Effie Strege, Ethyl Wohlwend
I wonder if Tekla was a teacher or a live in helper.  I will guess that this photo was taken about 1915-1920.(1915)
Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Update from Iggy:
Ethel Eva Wohlwend (Sep. 14, 1903 - Jan. 4, 1999) Buried in Pleasant View Cemetery, Lidgerwood, Richland CountyIn the same cemetery are the older sister, Myrtle Elsie Wohlwend (Mar. 2, 1900 - Dec. 25, 1918) and younger brother, Ray Carl Wohlwend (Jun. 4, 1909 - Nov. 29, 2003)

Their mother was Louisa Lizzie Strenge. I assume Effie was a niece.

Ray married Eleanor Marie Cryan on October 19, 1938. He has two sons and three daughters according to his obituary. 
"Teckla Wallack" (c. 1896) is listed in the 1910 US Census as a "hired girl" doing housework.
